182(a). KOSDOJU, THE BABBER.
By associating with slaves who steal the leavings of food
these ministers have come to destroy (the good name) of the
(royal: family. The worthy barber, Kondoju. who knows what
is proper is more sensible.*
Moreover, Kondoju, the barber gave Raiuaraju such a
cleiiii a< d comfortable shave at Vijayanagara that he won
the royal approbation. Ramaraja granted him graciously a
charter as a mark of his appreciation of Kondoju'S workman-
ship. The pannif and kanike which the barbers had to pay to
the government in the village of Vtukuru included in the sima
of Pottapi-nadu belonging to the God T irtlvengalanatha were
made sarvamanya at Awuku. In the same manner, the pannu
and the paryaya which the barber, Elloju, had to pay in
Pondaluru in the Pottapi slma were also made sarvamanya^
